Mackinaw City is a village in Emmet and Cheboygan counties in the U.S. Visiting Tahquamenon Falls and Oswald's Bear Ranch will get you outdoors. Get some historical perspective at McGulpin Point Lighthouse & Historic Site and USDA Iroquois Lighthouse. Go for a jaunt from Mackinaw City to Paradise to see Tahquamenon Falls State Park about 1h 30 min away. There's much more to do: visit a coastal fixture at Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse, steep yourself in history at Historic Mill Creek Discovery Park, and see the interesting displays at Fort de Baude Museum.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Chippewa County International Airport. In June, plan for daily highs up to 22°C, and evening lows to 12°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
